The certification was developed to provide therapists and assistants with practical experience and training to incorporate the latest evidence based treatment approaches for UE neurological rehabilitation to benefit patients. The course will review current research findings related to the treatment of the hemiparetic UE, teach participants to identify which patients with a variety of diagnoses will benefit, teach participants how to correctly fit and adjust the Orthoses (SaeboFlex, SaeboReach, and SaeboStretch), as well as teach participants to establish patient specific treatment plans that can be immediately incorporated into clinical practice.
"Saebo has opened a wide door of opportunities for my patients. Where I once told patients they have reached a plateau… now, no plateau is in sight." - Therapist
The course includes video lecture and lab activities that may be done at the therapist's convenience. Henry Hoffman, MS, OT/L, the inventor and co-founder of Saebo and Shannon L. Scott, OTD, OTR/L, faculty in the Occupational Therapy Program at Stony Brook University teach the course and facilitate the lab component.
